Leading . . .



(from Leadership in Turbulent Times by Doris Kearns Goodwin)
". . . by his third term, (Theodore) Roosevelt had begun to soften his abrasive self-righteousness. Working with Democrats, whom he had previously labeled as "rotten," he brought the two parties together to pass civil service reform and a host of bills to benefit the city of New York. He had taken his weaknesses, his physical liabilities, his fears, and the brash and self-centered aspects of his leadership style, and had carefully worked to overcome them. . . "

More Pot . . .


. . . calling the kettle 'names'. . .


(quote from Brett Kavanaugh during Senate judiciary hearing of September 27, 2018)
Kavanaugh called Democratic opposition to his nomination ". . . revenge on behalf of the Clintons . . . and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups . . . "


The strong objection to millions of dollars rings very hollow in light of the 'massive' amounts of legislation proposed by Republicans to rid government of corruption . . .

Here . . .

. . . with you


I’ve never been one
To follow trends
I won't be with the crowd
When they round the bend
But I'll be with you
Until the very end 'cause
Where it's at is here with you

Fancy parties
Leave me cold and drained
Discos, crowds
And posturing in vain
Only feed some silly
Appetite unnamed
Where it's at is here with you

I don't want to see the moon
Fly to Paris May or June
I just want a one-way fare
To any place where
You'll be there

I don't need gold
Or precious things
Fancy clothes
Or even diamond rings
I only need the thrill
That being with you brings
Where it's at is here with you

For fame or power
I have no desire
I don't crave acceptance
Or to be admired
I'm just happy
Sitting with you by the fire
Where it's at is here with you

I don't want to see the moon
Fly to Paris May or June
I just want a one-way fare
To any place where
You'll be there


Here With You

Church . . .


The church of music
Holds no ham and oyster suppers
We're all just deacons
With our boots upon the ground
Marching into mystery
In command but
Still can't quite see

The church of music
Won't require your weekly presence
You'll find it stays with you
No matter where you are
No dogmatic postulates
No demands on
Your fidelity

It can end the darkest night
Carry you through the hours
Know not if it’s wrong or right
Make no mistake
It’s divine
This church of mine

There are no fiery demons
In what I believe
It’s not for me to say
Who’s  what and where they go
All things flowing naturally
No controlling
Power over you or me

It can end the darkest night
Carry you through the hours
Know not if it’s wrong or right
Make no mistake
It’s divine
This church of mine

Stricly spiritual
No trace of any politics
Lurking in the mix or in the fabric
Only what is good
No room for hate and no deceit
Honesty
Sincerity will move you
And me

This church won’t interfere
With what you think or do
Your body and your mind are
Yours and yours alone
No one tells you what to say
No one criticizes
What you feel inside

It can heal the deepest wound
Shine a light in the darkness
Warm a chill in any room
Make no mistake
It’s divine
This church of mine


Church

Clueless?. . .

. . . unfortunately, yes . . .


(https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/trump-s-u-n-speech-pitting-globalism-against-patriotism-proves-ncna913141)
". . . setting up participation in international institutions as the opposite of patriotism is the ultimate straw man comparison. It confuses the shortcomings of such bodies with the devaluing of their intended missions. It casts organizations that we need to make us safer and more prosperous as threats to U.S. sovereignty. And it is ignores the last 70 years of history, when such international institutions served to safeguard and advance American interests far more than anyone else’s. . . Trump’s speech suggests no knowledge of history. . . "

Virgins . . .

. . . church . . .
. . . and 'talk'. . . from a character standpoing, is this compelling?


(https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/kavanaugh-truth-i-ve-never-sexually-assaulted-anyone-n912701)
". . . "The truth is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise," (Supreme Court nominee Brett) Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News. . . Kavanaugh also said in the interview that he was a virgin "in high school or for many years thereafter.". . ."I never sexual (sic) assaulted anyone," he said. "I did not have sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter. The girls from the schools I went to and I were friends.". . . "I never saw any such thing. Any such thing," he said. "I certainly never participated in any such thing. I never saw or heard of any such (sic) I was focussed on trying to be in number one in my class and captain of the varsity football team and going to church.". . .Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, saying . . . that "it would have been the talk of campus" if it had happened. . .

Boggled . . .

. . . my mind. . .


After amazement and inspiration from https://www.colinhuggins.nyc/contact/. . .

"Colin,
I am a pianist also. I truly admire what you do.

In addition though, I am confounded how you can move (particularly lower the vertical to horizontal) piano ALONE; or do you actually have help which is not obvious in the video I just watched.

All the best,
Ray Jozwiak"

Shouts . . .


Shouts in the street
I hear them as I'm walking home
Shoes on my feet
Touch down and take off as I roam

Dreams lifted up
So many pies in the sky
U-flying-o's
I duck them as they fly on by

Tomorrow takes care of itself
Today has its trial and its call
Janus he waits at your door

Rising or breaking his fall
You've got your "Time"
And secrets that love has betrayed
The long yellow line down your spine
That your feeling has frayed

Take my hand we may see
Everything we mean to be

When we meet again
Should it be under blanket of night?
All that remains
Is the matter of choice in disguise

Take my hand we may see
Everything we mean to be
Am I with you or you with me?
We have our time then take our leave

Deep in the heart
Where paradox finds its resolve
Long bodies live
They've learned how to bend to absolve

Now desire is the tie
That holds us fast to life
For the sweetness of the honey
Risk the peril of the hive

Now I'm running through your veins
In exchange I know your pain
All the lies have run aground
And to this earth I'm bound

LXI . . .

. . . is only a number


Fierce
In my passions,
Commitments
And with time

Gentle
By nature
Yet impatient
With injustice

Simple
In tastes
And appreciative of
Many things that others ignore


Days May Come

Some Things . . .


(from The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles)
". . . The (New York) Times editorial (defending Cornelius Vanderbilt and the question of railroad monopolies) introduces the second current of anxiety surrounding railroads: the corruption of government. The tales of bribery that flowed out of Albany reinforced stereotypes of public officials on the take, acting as if they were retainers of wealthy corporations, not representatives of the people. After Jay Gould took over as president of the Erie, he allied the railroad explicitly with the Tweed ring, naming 'Boss" Tweed himself to the board, along with his close associate Peter Sweeney. . ."

Best . . .




. . . name for a war ever. . .


(from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_Jenkins%27_Ear)
". . . The War of Jenkins' Ear (known as Guerra del Asiento in Spain) was a conflict between Britain and Spain lasting from 1739 to 1748, with major operations largely ended by 1742. Its unusual name, coined by Thomas Carlyle in 1858, refers to an ear severed from Robert Jenkins, a captain of a British merchant ship. There is no evidence of the stories that the severed ear was exhibited before the British Parliament. . . The seeds of conflict began with the separation of an ear from Jenkins following the boarding of his vessel by Spanish coast guards in 1731, eight years before the war began. Popular response to the incident was tepid until several years later when opposition politicians and the British South Sea Company hoped to spur outrage against Spain, believing that a victorious war would improve Britain’s trading opportunities in the Caribbean. Also ostensibly providing the impetus to war against the Spanish Empire was a desire to pressure the Spanish not to renege on the lucrative asiento contract, which gave British slavers permission to sell slaves in Spanish America.
. . .The war resulted in heavy British casualties in North America. After 1742, the war was subsumed by the wider War of the Austrian Succession, which involved most of the powers of Europe. Peace arrived with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748. From the British perspective, the war was notable because it was the first time that a regiment of colonial American troops (Oglethorpe's Regiment) was raised and placed "on the Establishment" – made a part of the regular British Army – and sent to fight outside North America. . .

Tongue . . .

. . . firmly . . .


[from https://www.quora.com/What-has-Barack-Obama-done-that-gets-so-many-people-angry,  Darrell Roberts, Writer/Owner of @ TheDR.World (2017-present)]
". . . (Former President Barack) Obama is guilty of:

Forging a fake American birth certificate (as so many strangely looked past the FACT that Obama’s mother was an American—yet, they failed to realize that Ted Cruz was actually in the proposed Obama situation. As in, Cruz’s father was not an American citizen, his mother is an American, but he was born in Canada).

He managed to get every illegal vote that has ever been cast—like millions of illegal votes—no proof required to back up that claim.

He ruined W.’s economy. You know, once he took over—the economy continued to tank. In fact, it was the 2nd worst economic crash in American history—all Obama’s fault. Let us ignore the long road of economic shennanigans and the crash that began under Bush—it only got worse—you know, because Obama.

Obama also worked secretly with his Brotherhood friends to bring Sharia Law to the U.S.—look around, Sharia started in Dearborn, Michigan—now, Sharia everywhere—until Trump came along. Now, Sharia everywhere is no longer mentioned—thanks Trump.

Obama also was responsible for creating ISIS. Let us not forget that ISIS formed under his watch. Of course, it’s because he pulled the troops out of Iraq. It had nothing to do with the Bush agreement to withdraw troops based on the then-Iraqi leaders populist position to not renew the SOFA (Status of Forces Agreement) that would protect American troops while in Iraq. The Iraqi populists wanted the power to try and sentence American troops for criminal activity in the Iraqi system (and not under the guarantees that SOFA affords).

Obama also took everybody’s guns. Everybody’s guns are all gone. As a result, everyone went out and bought a lot more guns, lots of guns, a record number of guns.

Obama also used Walmart to build secret FEMA camps to “house” all those folks after he took their guns.

Obama said you can keep your doctor—which apparently is a guarantee for life to everyone, under every circumstance. As such, and without much proof, a few stories came out (some were not even verified for accuracy) that proved one or 12 people lost their doctor—because Obama. Let us ignore a GOP systemic effort to impede the Affordable Care Act—by naming it Obamacare. Of course, they demonized the program at every opportunity, voted over 50 times to kill it, and some red states simply refused to implement the program knowing that their shitty systems would hurt their people while helping their anti-Obama healthcare political deception. Apparently, trying to give poor people insurance is the worst thing any politician could ever wish to do. More guns = good, more education or increased health care coverage = bad. This problem is further compounded by not allowing insurance companies to refuse coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. That’s socialism!

Obama also spoke on the divisive nature of Fox “news”—you know—thus, killing the first Amendent through his brutal attack on the media.

Obama spoke compassionately on such issues as race relations and religious tolerance. Instead, he should have done the “right” thing and called each individual within such groups a “son of a bitch” while urging more brain-damage in the NFl, and of course, highlighting that not all white supremacists or wannabe nazis are bad. In fact, some of them are “great” people.

Obama also failed to address Russia’s meddling. Of course, he took action to thwart the Russians (to include intelligence agencies contacting and warning individual states but the Congressional and state-level GOP knew it was all an Obama overstep—just a trick). Perhaps, things would have been different if Obama never criticized nor sanctioned Russia and Putin. After all, you think our country is so innocent?

Obama also had the audacity to politicize the Sandy Hook tragedy by appearing on TV and crying during his address. All a trick, as Alex Jones uncovered the Sandy Hook hoax—it was all actors—so Obama could take everyone’s guns. NOTE: In my book, Alex Jones shall be forever be known as a piece of shit human being for being a prime pusher of this conspiracy. The level of pain he helped to inflict upon an already suffering families is unforgivable. . . the ridiculousness of the claims waged against Obama by many that seemed to have joined an American Revolutionary LARP or something was so outrageous. In fact, it made legitimate concerns . . . seem bland in comparison—and fell on deaf ears. After four or five years, it became impossible to actually highlight any policy disagreement with the Obama administration—because the rhetoric was way past reason. . . Ironically, Trump seems to possess damn near every trait that Obama haters claimed about Obama. . . "

The Trick . . .

. . . to taking the high road


. . . is making sure that no one realizes that you are taking the high road.  So you must, in effect, execute the triple-whammy of :

1.  knowing that your goal is the right and proper one without saying so [possibly most important and trickiest]

2.  taking the right tack in presenting (arguing? discussing?) your case diplomatically

3.  doing both of the above in a manner that betrays no 'superiority', sarcasm or preachiness
